Summary/Abstract: The transition from charitable to professional assisting activities is correlated with the need for complex social services, that allow the person to change their lifestyle, if it is self-vulnerable (Cojocaru, 2002). The services offered to the beneficiaries should not only aim at ensuring material comfort, but at significantly increasing the quality of the beneficiary's life, their very happiness, expressed as subjective quality of life.
